Hundreds of armed Right Sector members, along with two Mossad agents, secretly arrived to Marseilles in a Cypriot boat in order to provoke a brawl on the eve of the Russia-England game on June 11. Their aim was to demonize Russia.
The riots during the England-Russia Euro2016 football match broke out after the English fans started to insult the Russians.

The prosecutor said that they were "well-trained" and "prepared for ultra-rapid, ultra-violent action" (bit.ly/1UpQcfP), .
